Testimonials

“Three things in my life saved me from going down a path of misery and depression:  my mother, God, and the staff (at Headway)…With each struggle I face now, I am filled with the courage and skills to take a healthy approach to fixing whatever it is that is I am having trouble with.”

Melissa joined Headway in September, 2016 and has worked in human services fields since 2011.  She has previous experience working with children and young adolescents with a variety of  special needs and mental health issues, but specializes in working with children on the autism spectrum.  She loves being an advocate for those who are unable to do so on their own by helping coordinate community resources for families.  "I hope to build trust through honesty, attentiveness, and unending advocacy for my clients," she says.  "I want to enable my clients to overcome obstacles and live positive and fulfilling lives."

Some of Melissa's favorite things to do outside of work include cooking, hiking, yoga, traveling, creating pottery, painting, reading, live music, and refinishing old furniture.
